Boston Beefs Up Security Ahead of World Series

Ad Feedback

Boston's Fenway Park is decked out and ready for baseball as the Red Sox face the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. But security is on the minds of Boston officials as the city prepares for game one Wednesday night.

Just six months after the Boston Marathon bombings, police say they're not taking any chances.

Even though authorities don't have specific intelligence indicating a planned attack, they're determined to prevent one.

Boston Police Chief Daniel Linskey said security personnel will be "making sure that people don't leave things, backpacks, or unattended packages. We're gonna be on our toes...to make sure it's a secure and safe environment. "

Linskey said Boston law enforcement will be relying on the fans themselves.

"Fans will keep an eye on one another...make sure people are behaving in an appropriate manner...and working with Boston police to make sure we have safe environment," he said.

"We are a city that works together. That's what's so important," Boston's Mayor Thomas Menino said. "Working together you can accomplish anything. Singly, you can't do anything. Police, community, all of us -- that's what makes Boston safe."

But there is one form of security you won't be seeing at Fenway: drones. Police have no plans to deploy them.
